22 June 2012
Excerpt: This professional grade optic for Nikon DX format digital SLRs provides an angle of view equivalent to a 25.5-82.5mm lens on a 35mm camera. This lens also sports a constant f/2.8 aperture throughout the range, a silent wave focusing motor and costs around £1065.
Pros: Very good sharpness in the centre at f/2.8, Excellent across the frame when stopped down, Tank-like build quality, Fast autofocus, Low falloff for a f/2.8 zoom
Cons: High CA levels, Not as sharp towards the edges of the frame at f/2.8, Expensive
Nikkor AF-S 17-55mm f/2.8 G IF-ED DX - Review / Test Report
31 October 2008
Conclusion: The Nikkor AF-S 17-55mm f/2.8G IF-ED DX is a professional grade lens and it certainly shows up regarding its exceptionally high build quality as well as very fast AF speed. Optically it is, without doubt, a very good lens but it has a few issues. The center performance is nothing short of stellar but the borders are a little worse than desirable at 24mm @ f/2.8 and at 55mm (for such a lens).
